Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities. Section 504 regulations require school districts to provide appropriate education to students with disabilities and Woodburn School District has an ongoing commitment to the education of ALL children in accordance with our mission statement.
Woodburn School District Board Policies can be found on the Woodburn School District website at: woodburnsd.org or under the “Quick Links” tab. The Section 504 forms are available in English and Spanish. Each school in the district has a 504 Coordinator and at least one 504 Case Manager. See below for a list at each school.
If the Section 504 team determines that an evaluation is appropriate for the student, no evaluation can occur without written parental consent. After consent for evaluation is signed by the parent, the evaluation process begins with gathering information from all sources. The types of records or information may include medical, mental health, behavioral, psychological, etc. If the Section 504 team determines if the student has a disability under Section 504 and whether the student needs a 504 Student Accommodation Plan. If needed, the law also requires periodic re-evaluation of the student and annual review of the 504 Student Accommodation Plan.
